The first entry of the Ultra Series, Ultra Q, featured mankind encountering the giant monsters known as Kaiju. The series was released in 1966 by the special effects studio Tsuburaya Productions, which was founded in 1963 by special effects wizard Eiji Tsuburaya, the man who brought such monsters to life as the King of the Monsters himself, Godzilla.
The franchise really took of with its second entry; Ultraman the show, that introduced the first titular Ultra Warrior fighting off Kaiju, and alien invaders from space known as Seijin. Ultraman was pioneer in the beginning of Japan's "Monster Craze", so Tsuburaya's third entry into the Ultra Series; Ultraseven introduced the second titular Ultra Warrior, as well as expanding on the concept of space alien invaders.
Even after Eiji Tsuburaya's death on January 25 in 1970, the Ultra Series has continued to live on as one of his greatest creations.
